Show Notes | Episode #82: Alex Garland - The Science of Ex Machina
Alex Garland is the writer and director of Ex Machina, a recently released film about what happens when someone is asked to interact with what might be the world’s first true artificial intelligence (as well as the writer of Dredd, Sunshine, and 28 Days Later).
On the show this week guest host Rebecca Watson talks to Garland about the science behind the film, and what he learned in the process of making it.
